Royston is a town in Hertfordshire which came into being because it is at a crossing of two ancient streets, those of Icknield Way and Ermine Street. The former was a prehistoric route, while the latter was built by the Romans. The town gets its name from the old cross that was erected at the crossroads at some time in the past (no one know for sure when), which was called Roisia’s Cross and which gave the town its name, with derivatives being Roisia’s town, Roiston and finally Royston. It seems that King James VI of Scotland and so King James I of the unified kingdoms of England and Scotland took a fancy to Royston and built a hunting lodge there. There’s a man-made cave in Royston with mediaeval carvings on its walls of religious scenes, and although no one knows for certain, it is possible that it was made by the Knights Templar before the 14th century.
